VALENTINES knitting: Beginner dishcloth or Blanket block

VALENTINES knitting: Beginner dishcloth or Blanket block

January is a month for planning Valentine’s crafts. And here’s my first one! Is a dishcloth or blanket block with some hearts in it, beginner level, and “52 Square Pickup”-sized 🙂 So, feel free to add it to your blanket if you still working on that. You could also adapt the pattern to make some placemats, or even a scarf (ask me if you need help!). I’m planning on making a baby blanket with this pattern for my Etsy shop as soon as I can.

I’m also making another dishcloth with cabled hearts, for more advanced knitters. And I’ll write a blog post to show you how to make a teapot cozy (or teapot warmer), using either pattern. So, stay tuned!

Well, I’m writing a lot… I’ll better go back to my needles 🙂

Enjoy the pattern, and talk to you soon!

PS: I think I spent more time untangling my ceropegia for the photo than knitting this square. Those leaves love to hug each other!

  • ALPHABET series: 26 lettern patterns.
  • NUMBERS series: 12 patterns (numbers 0 to 9, plus asterisk and hash).
  • “YOU ARE LOVED” baby hats, in 4 sizes (newborn to toddlers).
  • “ALERCES” cowl.
  • “HEART” dishcloths or blocks, 2 pattern versions.
  • “SMILEY” dishcloth or block.
  • “TARGARYEN” blanket pattern.
